Have you been dreaming about starting a journal? Have you looked at the huge selection of leather covers available and then not been sure which one you should buy because you don't know which size paper notebook fits inside. Or have you been looking for the ideal journal / planner gift that won't break the bank but also has the advantage that it's ready to use from the start? The Orchard Leather Journal Covers from Meadowgate Leather solves all the above and more! It comes in a wide range of sizes (see below for the detail). Each cover includes four handmade notebook refills (replacements are avaialble here too, but they are standard sizes). The leather is strong and dyed and lacquered at the tannery. The back (inner) side has a smooth finish. The leather is approx 2.5 - 3mm thick, making it the journal of choice for a strong and sturdy cover with a bright colour. I hand make every journal cover with care and attention and just because this is a starter set, the detail undertaken is still as if it were a premium model. To show my pride in my work, each of the Orchard journal covers is stamped with my maker's mark on the back. The cover (whichever size you choose) comes with four standard (unlined) notebooks which have been hand-stitched with strong waxed thread down the spine. These will be suspended on the four elastics. The notebook cover colours may vary, as may the thread and the elastic colours.

I'm so impressed with my gorgeous notebook - the stitching is bang-on. Just perfect. The leather is much sturdier than I thought it would be, but that worked great for me. No hesitation in recommending. Brilliant stuff. Thank you.

It's gorgeous! Beautifully made, thank you
